I don't think this company has much upside at this point in the game. Regulations will bury the sector.

Just learned that Knight Transportation signed a consent decree with FMCSA to install EOBR's in all their trucks due to so many hours of service violations. My company was required to do the same thing and it cost tens of thousands of dollars and we have less than 12 trucks. It also cost us a lot of business as we were tied to that EOBR. This has become a slow death for my company and I'm sure it will result in the same for Knight. My boss just loves writing all the checks to Qualcomm for our EOBR link ups. Maybe we should find out what satellite company thye will be using and buy their stock because they'll be getting rich off of Knight.

While searching around in the Federal Motor Carrier Enforcement actions I noticed that Knight Transportation was given a conditional rating. Most brokers will not use carriers with Conditional ratings and I'm sure this is affecting their business. I'm surprised that this was not conveyed in their recent SEC filings. Knight is apparently fighting the actions in court and have actually states that the action has affected their business. It was also fishy that the CEO just sold a bunch of stcok considering the upward statements from their last filings. WHERE THERE'S SMOKE THERE'S FIRE.

A recessions a coming this summer and high oil prices are not going away since the falling dollar is to blame, and continued inflation is not going to bring the value of the dollar up any time soon. Burnanke was not helping this country by bailing out the crust of American society. Also, Bush's stimulus package didn't help the upward inflationary pressure that is killing this countries middle class. Sorry about my rant but anyway my point is to sell trucking since rail is about to take over from the high price of fuel.

Rising fuel costs increase trucking directly. even workers starting strikes, causes companies to lose thie profitability.

Peter Lynch would love this one. Knight is a family run business with high insider ownership (40%), plenty of cash, and no debt. High fuel costs have cut into profit and is temporarily curbing growth. Knight is a strong player in trucking and will weather this one out while others become road kill.

Earnings rise, dropping the PE below Knight's typical PE for the last five years. The street should eventually pick up on the fact that this company's earnings are not that closely tied to fuel prices and cause the stock price to jump.

This well run company still has lots of room to grow over the next 5 years. Look for 1 to 2 more splits in that time frame. And who better to know than someone who works at Knight Trans.

This trucking company has been on my watchlist for well over a year and keeps showing up on my screens. I haven't invested in it yet, but compared to similar companies it has a favorable growth rate and good returns on capital. I think it should be valued higher.

I think there is too much concern about a slowing the economy and this has hit trucking hard. Knight is a good quality company with a great track record!

Strong operator in frozen food trucking, which could be insulated from recessionary environment that is pressuring transportation stocks. Smaller players struggling with increased capex and regulation, positioning companies like KNX for share gains. Also, construction slowdown could boost relative attractiveness of truck driving, easing supply constraints.

best margins in the LTL trucking industry, small player in huge market, 15-20% organic growth in top and botton line, high insider ownership, very clean accounting, strong balance sheet, decent valuation at 22x LTM earnings, EV/EBITDA of 9x, very high returns on invested capital - buy around price of 17
